New year, new beginnings, right? Correct! It may be a little too early for Spring cleaning, but who’s to say your home doesn’t need some freshening up? Not all of us have the budget to completely redecorate our homes for the new year, but there are are few tricks to add a breath of fresh air to your living space. One of our favorites is the No Sew Pillow Case. Yes, you read correctly, “no sew.” What could be better than that? If you’re sewing machine challenged just as we are, this DIY is right up your alley!
What you will need:
- Standard throw pillow (preferably without any embellishments)
- A piece of fabric 3 times as wide plus a few more inches and twice as tall plus a few more inches as the pillow
- Pinking shears
Use pinking shears to cut the fabric to avoid fraying.
Start by folding the bottom half of the fabric to the center of the pillow.
Then fold the top down to the center.
Fold the edges of each end as if you’re wrapping a present.
Bring one side over the top of the pillow. Repeat for the opposite side.
Tie the ends in a square knot. To tie a square knot you take the fabric over-under then under-over.
